Chameleon Technology has pledged support for the DCMS Secure By Design Code of Practice for Consumer IoT Security.

The Code of Practice was published by the Government Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to support all parties involved in the development, manufacture and retail of consumer IoT.

Chameleon has always considered the privacy and security of homeowner data as critical.

Chameleon has always considered the privacy and security of homeowner data as critical to the development of any product. This guidance from the UK government is a welcome addition to the increasingly crucial Internet-of-Things marketplace and sets out baseline steps that firms can take to secure private information processed by their products.

Product security is an important part of Chameleon’s day-to-day operations

Chameleon’s Product Security Officer Tom Moore explains, “Product security is an important part of Chameleon’s day-to-day operations and the principles of the Secure By Design approach have long been an important part of our culture. It is a natural step for us to pledge our support for the work being done to standardise and better secure the IoT marketplace in the UK and around the world.”

John Moor, Managing Director, IoT Security Foundation, explains the strategic importance of the DCMS Code of Practice. “The UK government’s Code of Practice provides clear and simple guidelines for Consumer IoT products in a rapidly moving and largely unregulated market sector. The prioritised objectives and practices offer sound defence for a large number of the exploits witnessed to date on a wide range of consumer and industrial devices. We urge manufacturers to meet these guidelines as an assurance to customers, and we urge consumers to ask for them to ensure their data is protected.”

Chameleon will continue to develop and improve its solutions as new technologies and threats emerge.

Through its engagement with industry bodies including the IOT Security Foundation, SECAS, the DCC and ESMIG, Chameleon has been incorporating and developing security solutions which meet these criteria for several years. The company continues to develop and improve its solutions as new technologies and threats emerge.
